It's only the third time since divisional play began in 1969 that one division has blanked another division four times in one night according to STATS. The NL West did it to the NL East on May 12, 1981 and the AL East did it to the AL West on June 7, 1969.
Felix Hernandez and Seattle got the night started beating Toronto 4-0. A.J. Griffin and the Oakland Athletics got past CC Sabathia and the Yankees 2-0. Derek Holland pitched eight innings to help Texas defeat Boston 7-0. Jason Vargas closed out the impressive pitching night by the AL West by throwing a three-hitter in the Angels' 4-0 win over Baltimore.
